Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham
under the patronage of Blessed John Henry Newman

In this section:


Welcome to the Parish Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, Sheffield where the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham meets to offer Mass according to the Ordinariate Use. Everyone is welcome and all Catholics in communion with the Holy See are permitted to receive the Sacraments with us. These Masses are listed by referring to Dates for your diary opposite.

While we are certainly untraditional in our structure we are traditional in our forms of worship using the liturgical celebrations proper to the Anglican Tradition which have been approved by the Holy See, so as to maintain the liturgical, spiritual and pastoral traditions of the Anglican Communion within the Catholic Church.

We are in communion with the Universal Church because we believe that having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, through the Church he established, is in accordance with the unity for which our Lord prayed. We discover the healing of Christ’s Church through our communion within the Catholic Church and it is our mission to continually call other Christians to begin that same healing and unity we have started to experience ourselves,







Our next monthly Sung Mass will celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Walsingham according to the Ordinariate Use will take place on Monday, 25th September in the Parish Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, Spring Water Drive, Hackenthorpe, S12 4HJ at 11am.
